  • Formmail and more

    Appologies if i have posted to the wrong forum

    I have been attempting to test a simple form using formmail.

    Firstly my setup;
    WindowsXP Pro SP2
    PC Non domain server
    Apache 2.2.8
    PHP 4.4.7
    Perl set to /usr/bin (c:\usr\bin)
    CGI path C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\cgi-bin
    All path variables set correctly
    Referers etc set correctly in formmail.pl

    Perl is working correctly tested with various domain names using

    http://www.manydomainnames.com/cgi-bin/hello.cgi

    contents of which are;
    #!/usr/bin/perl
    print "Content-type:text/html\n\n";
    print "hello mum";

    Being a windoz system i have no sendmail program, therefore i opted to use
    a freebie from http://glob.com.au/sendmail/

    can't seem to get this to work as this pc is not a domain server, and i'm loathed to make it one as i'll have to reinstall Apache etc.

    The error message i receive in Apache is:-

    [Thu Aug 21 18:15:25 2008] [error] [client 82.198.???.??] (OS 3)The system
    cannot find the path specified. : couldn't create child process: 720003:
    FormMail.pl, referer: http://mydomain.com/response.html

    [Thu Aug 21 18:15:25 2008] [error] [client 82.198.???.??] (OS 3)The system
    cannot find the path specified. : couldn't spawn child process:
    C:/Program Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/cgi-bin/FormMail.pl,
    referer: http://mydomain.com/response.html

    Can anyone help, i moved from IIS to Apache, can't remember why, but i do
    need smtp etc. Any suggestions as what to do what programs i can use to
    enable me to send emails both with formmail and via Outlook, else i guess
    i'll have to go back to IIS, yeeks.

    I do hope this makes sense, as i'm just a hobbyist and enjoy hosting my own sites for my own pleasure.

    Cheers
